Lai Mohammed, The Minister of Information, in an interactive session with journalists currently, and he was asked how he feels when some Nigerians accuse him of always telling a lie.
He responded thus;
“I have two burdens. The first is that I happen to be the face of the opposition and PDP has not forgiven me and I don’t think they will ever forgive me.
I think they look at the magnitude of what has happened to them and they hold me solely responsible; which is not fair.
But, I did my bit. Now becoming the face of government again, it is automatic to them that whatever comes from Lai Mohammed, we must shoot it down as fake news and a lie.
Incidentally, my father gave me the name Lai also. So, it makes it very easy for them to make me a liar. But what I challenge them every time is, please, give me one thing I said that is not true.
Emotionally, you may not agree with me but in terms of facts and figures, I have never said anything that they can dispute. You don’t have to like it but you can’t deny that they are facts”
